The Cardinals may still try to add a bat today

Jul 31, 2010, 2:18 PM EST

The Ludwick trade left a team that was already one bat light two bats light, but Joe Strauss of the Post-Dispatch is saying that Cardinals’ executives he’s talking to haven’t ruled out adding another bat today.

I’m not sure how to feel about the “won’t rule out” stories we’ve seen so much of lately. It seems like an easy punt phrase for front office people.  By deploying it, they can easily do nothing and say that they tried even if they didn’t.  Watch this: I’m not ruling out losing 20 pounds. I’m not ruling out a series of sultry rendezvous with Hollywood starlets. I’m not ruling out winning “Last Comic Standing” next year.

If I don’t do those things it’s because I was a victim of circumstance. Not that I didn’t try!

    Uh-oh. I see a Metropolitans manager trainee rising in the ranks
